The event was attended by Dean Thomas, Dean Karimbux, several faculty, staff members and HPSP students as well as local military recruiters.  Dr. Henry Talberth and Thomas Whitmer (D18) spoke about their experiences in the military. Each graduating HPSP senior was presented with a National Defense Ribbon, rank insignia and a dental corps device. Incredibly proud of our D17s, and thank you so much for your service to the country!
